I have this old saw...
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:16:29 pm »
I've had this Sachs Dolmar KMS-4 for about 25+ years.  It did not have a bar/chain when I got it, so the first bar was a 24" Windsor sprocket tip.  Recently I downsized it to a 20" Oregon PowerMatch Bar with 73LGX chain.  With both of those combos, it has plenty of power even when the whole bar is deep in the cut.  I've always used Amsoil Synthetic 2-stroke oil and premium fuel in it.  It doesn't get used much in Florida now, but Irma clean-up pressed it back into service.  Ran great still and got the job done!  Time to clean it up and put it back on the bench until the next storm!

Wow, that's in mint condition! Looks like it just came out of the box! 

I know they are rare and quite collectible but it seems a waste to just have them on the shelf.  There's nothing like the sound of this saw under load working it's way through a big cut.  It's so smooth and an almost melodic exhaust note.

I got this when we were cleaning out the shop where I worked in the 80's.  Saved it from the dumpster.   :D
